To present ourselves before God makes a big difference in how we go about our day. I commented on Facebook yesterday that I wan't to be "in God's way", I want to be moving the way He's moving. If I'm moving with God, I feel invincible, like nothing can go wrong. If anything does go wrong I feel better prepared to handle it.
The bible reads in 2 Timothy 2:15 to "Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth."
When we present ourselves, we show up, presenting ourselves to God means clearly making it known to that we are open, willing, and available to His power by taking the time out to show up. Make time for God. Presenting ourselves is submitting ourselves, life is so much easier when we submit ourselves to God's authority.
When we submit ourselves completely in spirit, we also submit our problems. Taking time to just meditate and focus on the goodness of God before we proceed with our day is a blessing. There is much work to do on a daily basis, We don't have to carry this load by ourselves, we can put our trust in God and let Him handle it. Whatever you do, just show up...show up before God's presence and allow His wisdom to take the lead.
Show up in prayer to be led by God. His word is a lamp for our feet, and a light for our journey.
